Look for a chem tutor who knows how to teach
If you're reading this page, chances are you or your child is having a really tough time in science. Do not panic. There are highly skilled tutors who can help, but in order to find them you need to know what you're looking for.
College campuses are full of science majors and grad students (nursing, medicine, engineering, etc.) who know a lot about chemistry--and have certainly passed it themselves. You might, as I did, get help from one of them. But as grateful as I am for the help I got, my chemistry tutor didn't really know how to teach.
Here are some questions to ask a prospective science tutor:
1. What strategies do you use to illustrate concepts?
2. What do you do with a student who doesn't understand your explanation?
3. Describe your experience teaching chemistry.
4. Do you have any hands-on methods of teaching chem?

Empower yourself and make your success happen
Tutors are wonderful, but not magical. To make your sessions a success, you'll need to put in a lot of time and energy. Chemistry is a tough subject, and it's easy to get behind. You'll have to do the basics: study daily, keep up with assignments, show up for all classes, and follow your tutor's guidance.
Take heart: hundreds of thousands of students have passed chemistry. You can too!
